CHANGES
General
We have addressed an issue that, in certain circumstances, caused an error to occur when multiple staff
members entered transactions in the Actions > Enter Transactions screen at the same time.
Data conversion from Creative Solutions Accounting™
We have addressed an issue that prevented the conversion of a client record when Standard fee billing
items were set up in Accounting CS.
General – Payroll
We have addressed an issue that prevented payroll check distribution amounts from properly updating
the general ledger activity when a payroll check was edited after it was initially saved.
Payroll form and filing information
The Payroll Form and Filing Information portlet on the Home or Firm dashboard provides the following
information: form approval status, form availability, available filing methods, form due dates, form filing
addresses, tax payment information (for all tax types), agency contact information, new hire reporting
information, payroll resources, and tax calendar (to view and print tax deposit due dates and form due
dates for all federal, state, and certain local tax agents). Click the applicable jurisdiction on the map to
display the federal, state, and local tax form information within the tabbed pages in the lower section of
the portlet. For information on working with portlets, enter Dashboard portlet: Payroll Form & Filing
Information in the search field on the application toolbar.

In addition to the changes made for general payroll features listed above for after-the-fact payroll
processing, the following changes have been made for the live payroll processing features specific to
